The Funny Side of Flying in the Far North

You know those outlandish tales you've heard about early bush pilots of the Far North? Turns out some of them are true. ALASKA'S SKY FOLLIES reveals the humorous truth about an earlier era of aviation. This book is full of stories of the daring and courage of Alaska's special breed of seat-of-the-pants aviators. They include the near-misses, when all you could do was shake off the fear and laugh when it was over . . . the honest miscalculations that made good yarns later . . . the ingenuity and skill that kept the airplanes aloft . . . and much more.

"ALASKA'S SKY FOLLIES is chock-full of stories of old-time pilots that will keep the faint-hearted from ever boarding a single-engine plane again."
    --Anchorage Daily News
